North Farnborough Infant School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and expects all staff, volunteers and other people encountering our children to share this commitment. This includes online safety.
Online safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. We want to help our parents and children improve their own understanding of online safety issues so they can learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.
From observing your child, especially during lockdown, you will know how important the internet is to children - they use it to learn, play, socialise and express themselves. It's a highly creative place of amazing opportunities. But the technology children use every day can seem a bit daunting and you might worry about the risks your child can face online - such as bullying, contact from strangers or the possibility of them seeing illegal or inappropriate content.
You can download a simple checklist below that may help you start to protect your children online and decrease the risks they face, or you can engage with your children regarding their use of the internet while at home. Here are some conversation starter ideas from www.childnet.com
